Unboxing: Marc Jacobs Beauty Coconut Dew Drops Gel Highlighter

*I received the product (mentioned in this blog) complimentary to test and review

Summer is approaching and I'm in the market for a new highlighter. Thank my lucky stars - and Influenster and Marc Jacobs Beauty, I received the Coconut Dew Drops Gel Highlighter to test and review.

I've tested Marc Jacobs beauty products in the past and have consistently been impressed with the quality. So the bar was set pretty high for this highlighter. The packaging is very much in line with the other Marc Jacobs products - sleek, sophisticated, and also heavy. It may not travel well since it's usually in a glass container but it looks great on the vanity.

It's in a pump instead of a dropper like I've seen with other liquid or drop-like highlighters, and I much prefer it in a pump because it's more sanitary and its easy to control how much products you want to apply without making a mess.

The highlighter is in a golden shade, and I feel this is a shade that can work for every skin tone. The formula is dense as you'd expect a gel highlighter to be. It's not watery so it doesn't run down the side of your face during application.

A warning for anyone who's doesn't like coconut scented products, this highlighter is infused with coconut water and it smells like coconut (heaven!).

I look forward to testing and reviewing this highlighter for the next couple of weeks! I've been wearing this for the past few days to work and I'm really liking how it looks so far.

Thank you to Influenster and Marc Jacobs Beauty for sending this to me! #CoconutGlow

L'Oreal Extraordinary Clay Hair Care System Review

As someone who has oily roots and dry ends, this new hair care system from L'Oreal sounds like a dream. I purchased all from products from the collection to see if it'll balance out my hair and maybe I won't be putting dry shampoo in my hair by second hair day.

This collection is called "Extraordinary Clay", and it claims to help rebalance oily roots/scalp while moisturizing ends. It sounds like a perfect match for my hair struggles. Also this whole system is suitable for color treated hair. The collection includes:

  • Rebalancing shampoo and conditioner
  • Clay Mask pre-shampoo treatment
  • Dry shampoo "Clay In A Spray"

The collection is packaged in a pretty teal color and has a fresh scent which is not very overpowering.

Take a look at my video review (demo included) on how the whole system works:
